Brown trout acclimated to soft water and exposed for 96 h to a sub-lethal concentration of copper at low pH (0.08 micromol l(-1) Cu, pH 5) have a lower critical swimming speed than fish from copper-free water at neutral pH. This loss of performance is not due to difficulties in oxygen transfer resulting from gill damage since arterial oxygen and carbon dioxide levels remain unaffected. Both red and white muscle showed some metabolic disruptions consistent with local hypoxia, namely a high… CONTINUE READING
